RDF is one of the most used languages for resource description and SPARQL has become its standard query language. Nonetheless, SPARQL remains limited to generate automatically documents from RDF repositories, as it can be used to construct only RDF documents. We propose in this paper an extension to SPARQL that allows to generate any kind of XML documents from multiple RDF data and a given XML template. Thanks to this extension, an XML template can itself contain SPARQL queries that can import
